Let’s congratulate Marion Bartoli and Andy Murray who won Wimbledon 2013 Women and Men Grand Slam singles titles. Andy Murray made Britain proud by winning this title for his country after a long gap of 77 years. But what makes this Wimbledon memorable is the victory of Marion Bartoli. Barely had she started her march towards her victory over Sabine Lisicki and had started smelling the sweetness of success, there came some sour words from a presenter of BBC. Bartoli’s magnanimous response after the victory is sure to warm the cockles of your heart but it also leaves us with some lessons of life.
